Hello, hello, hello!
I can't believe it's almost the end of February and March is just around the corner, can you?
It's the 4th Tuesday of the month, so it's time for the Inspiration Challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. Here's my DT card.
I am the hostess this month, so I get to pick the picture. This is the photo that I've chosen for the Inspiration Challenge and I want you all to 'Think Spring'.
I hope you will join us in our challenge. And for additional inspirations, have a look at the fabulous cards from my DT teamates at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog HERE.
I used my markers to colour the images for this card. This adorable one for the front of the card is from an older Bon Voyage Collection 2010 and is called Bon Voyage Tilda. Head over the Magnolia-licious, Diana's online store, where she has a great selection of full-size and mini Magnolia stamps. Check out her selections of dies too--Memory Box, Poppy Stamp, Marianne Design and Magnolia Doohickey.
Right from the beginning, when I started colouring Magnolia images, I thought that the perfect flowers to use for embellishments would be...what else...magnolias. But I didn't see them anywhere, so I told myself that someday I should try making my own magnolia flowers. That was part of reason I chose the picture...hee hee. It's that time!
I really tried making the paper flowers looking like real ones. I luvvv... Magnolias (LOL...both the stamp and the flower) and always look forward to seeing the magnolia trees totally covered with blooms every spring--they just look glorious! I wish the flowers would stay in the trees longer though, but they only last a few days before the petals start falling to the ground...sigh.
Here's what the inside of my card looks like. This Tilda With 3 Flowers is from an even earlier Hoppy Easter Collection 2010.
